"I like that it's fairly easy to implement these ethernet switches."
"Juniper Ethernet Switches are high-end solutions."
"The Juniper Ethernet switch feature I find the most valuable is reliability."
"One of the most valuable features of Juniper Ethernet Switches is they are rugged."
"The virtual Chassis feature for stacking is good in general, with high bandwidth for the link, which is good."
"One of the nicest things about Juniper switches is they work well with other vendor products. When you have to go into a situation where other vendor switches are present, you can make it work."
"The most valuable features of Juniper Ethernet Switches are the simple configuration and ruggedness."
"The solution is easy to use and has good integration."
"It is very stable. It has good hardware and very stable code. It provides good value for its price. They are a very lean type of organization, so they are very responsive, and they're able to focus more on their platform versus having multiple products out there."
"It's an extremely reliable platform for the network switches we use."
"The most valuable features of the Arista Networks Platform are the EVPN and VXLAN. It has comprehensive features."
"It provides telemetry and visibility for many metrics that are not supported by most of the other vendors. Out of the box, no third party solutions are needed."
"The solution is very stable."
"The solution has good load latency. They're the market leader in this aspect right now."
"The configuration capabilities were good."
"Arista Networks Platform offers straightforward deployment, and has good features. Support for the platform is also good."
"They last quite a while."
"If you're a small one-on-one organization, then cost-effective-wise, I would recommend it."
"I use it on a daily basis and I find it to be quite stable."
"They're straightforward to set up."
"Huawei Ethernet Switches are very stable."
"Huawei Ethernet Switches are both scalable and stable."
"Scalability isn't an issue."
"The functionality is basically the same as Cisco."
"The updates are constantly breaking."
"The stability could be better. We find, for example, Cisco, to be more stable."
"The security features for the product should be more unified for the product regardless of the product model."
"The price is in the intermediate range. It is not overly expensive, but also not cheap. It could stand improvement."
"They could improve the code, as there are some issues with it."
"The initial setup for Juniper switches is complex. Juniper has a new program that solves that problem a little bit, but it is expensive, so I don't use it. It is Juniper Mesh, Juniper Wire, or something like that where you plug in a switch, and it goes out to their cloud, finds a config, and brings it down. So, you can do everything cloud-based, but there is a fee for that. It is expensive, so I've never used it. If we were starting, we would try to do something like that. It is more for a large enterprise for managing hundreds of switches versus what we're doing. They should make its price more cost-effective or include it for new or smaller companies."
"Some areas of technical support could be better."
"The Virtual Chassis Fabric is kind of complicated to troubleshoot sometimes. On the MPLS side, they're good — they're fine for the pseudo-wires and stuff—but they need more work on the LAN. It is difficult to troubleshoot their LAN technologies like Virtual Chassis."
"Its price can be better."
"The solution is quite expensive. One of the negative aspects of it is the pricing."
"Arista Networks Platform should focus on improving the compatibility or integration with Cisco solutions."
"The solution is a bit pricey."
"The community is good but is not good enough. It still needs to grow more."
"The solution needs to accommodate new features."
"The solution needs to improve their product range."
"The overall price of the Arista Networks Platform is expensive. It should be reduced."
"Huawei Ethernet Switches are scalable but can be improved."
"We had a few issues with integration."
"It’s hard to get technical support."
"The configuration could be improved and deployment should be easier."
"I didn't like the Huawei Switches because of the different versions resetting the configuration issue. Huawei doesn't support Layer 3 modes while TOE and ARP have some issues."
"We would like to see additional backup solutions, since we have several degrees of backup."
"The stability could be improved."
"It is not easy to use if you need to monitor, patch or update. It needs to be configured by a network specialist because it doesn't have an overall central monitoring tool or anything like that. I'd say no ease of use."
